    The Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law prohibits unauthorized deductions from wages. One of the main exceptions is where the employee authorizes the deduction in writing. Some employers have employees sign forms, authorizing certain deductions. However, in this situation, the deduction, even if it were authorized by the employees, cannot operate to bring the employees' wages to below minimum wage. The employees should contact an attorney if they believe that they were "shorted," especially if that brought their wages to below minimum wage.
